1990 Documented reliquary theca with relic of St. Francis Solanus, Patron of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay & Peru

Round yellow-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing the first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of Saint Francis Solanus. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Francisi So. (Saint Francis Solanus).  On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of Order of Friars Minor. The relic is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and sealed in 1990 by the Postulator General of the Order responsible for the Causes of Canonization. 

Saint Francis Solanus O.F.M., (Francisco Solano y Jiménez) (†1610) was a Spanish Franciscan friar and missionary in South America, honored as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church. He was beatified by Pope Clement X in 1675, and canonized by Pope Benedict XIII in 1726. He is a Patron Saint of Argentina; Bolivia; Chile; Paraguay; Peru; and also against earthquakes. His feast day is commemorated on 14 July.
